Here’s a statement issued Monday by NCAA president Mark Emmert regarding the charges against former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky: “This is a criminal matter under investigation by law enforcement authorities and I will not comment on details. However, I have read the grand jury report and find the alleged assaults appalling. As a parent and an educator, the notion that anyone would use a position of trust to prey on children is despicable. My thoughts and concern goes out to the alleged victims and their families.”
The five killed between midnight and 4 a.m. has already made Saturday Chicago’s deadliest day in shootings since Sept. 10, according to Chicago Sun-Times data.
The 44-year-old fell off the CTA Pink Line platform and made contact with the third rail about 11:25 p.m. in the 1900 block of South Kedzie Avenue, authorities said.
